I made this tonight with a few adjustments. I doubled the recipe, used 2 cups wholewheat flour and 1/2 cup white flour. I added 1/2 tsp of sugar to the yeast mixture, because my flatmate said I had to feed the yeast to make it fart bubbles. I added 1 tablespoon of oregano, 1 tablespoon of basil and some mixed herbs. I used only 3 tablespoons of oil and I think I could cut more out next time. I also cut the salt down to 1/2 teaspoon. I used 1/4 of the mixture for my pizza and my boyfriend made two pizzas out of the rest of the dough. We kneaded it, I don't know if we were supposed to, but we did.

With the above alterations my pizza base had 392 Calories, my boyfriends two pizzas came to 1174 Calories. 


This makes great CinnaStix. Mix sugar, butter, and cinnamon and spread it on the crust before you bake it. Then once it comes out, drizzle it with a powdered sugar glaze. Delicious!


This was so amazing!!!! I made one which white flour for my dad and i used rice flour for mine and it turned out perfect!!! perhaps a little underdone in the centre but it still tasted YUMMY!


i made this the other nite (scaled down for just me) using 1/2 cup ww flour, 2 tsp oil, dried rosemary and oregano, about a tablespoon of yeast, and a tsp of sugar...topped with marinara, eggplant, peppers, onion, and a sprinkle of TVP....absoulutely DELICIOUS!


Easy, yummy and quick indeed! I made mine with mashed peas, mint and roasted garlic, and turned on the broiler at high for the last 5 minutes of cooking. I also added 1 tablespoon of sugar to the yeast, just because that was what I was taught to do. I will be making this often!


This was the greatest pizza ever. Thanks a lot for this.


Seriously. This was the best pizza dough ever. I doubled the recipe and used 2 C unbleached all-purpose flour with 1/2 C whole wheat flour. It turned out wonderful! I LOVED that I didn't have to wait for it to rise. I do think it could use a bit less oil than in the originial recipe, though.

This is going to be the staple dough recipe for all my future pizzas.


(My pizza has Follow Your Heart cheddar and mozzerella, Lightlife veggie pepperoni, and mushrooms)


This was good,it was quick and easy.  I made stuffed crust(vegan cheddar cheese) with homemade sauce, topped with vegan mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage and onions.  This was one of he best pizzas I ever made.  This is a keeper. O h yeah I added basil and oregano to the dough I love mines with those herbs in it.


wow VERY quick VERY easy and VERY tasty.  Mmm!  I upped the recipe to 2/3 cup water and 1 1/2 cup flour, thinking i'd need it to make a whole meal for myself (I eat a lot), but the original recipe would have been more than enough.  I put tomato sauce, basil, oregano, black pepper, garlic pepper, sliced red bell pepper, mushrooms and kalamata olives under shredded Vegan Gourmet mozarella.

BTW, WOW, I thought all vegan cheese was shit before tonight.  I mean, there are some cheese that I thought tasted okay -- and I love Lady Dragonfly's uncheese -- but even when it was good, I never thought fake cheese tasted much like cheese.  But the Vegan Gourmet mozarella is ABSURDLY delicious, and it tastes just like real mozarella, imo.  I couldn't believe it; I'd been a doubter so long.  I felt like Paul (it's Paul right?) on the road to Damascus.  I'd had VG cheddar before and didn't care for it.


This was quick & delicious. I added some oregano to it to add a little extra flavor. thanks for this recipe!
